Open badges for learning: a new way to recognise skills and achievements

A presentation at the annual conference of the Chartered Institute of Librarians and Information Professionals in Scotland, 4th June 2013.

Via Paulo Simões
Matt Gleeson's insight:

I see some great potential in the OpenBadges concept, the next 12 to 24 months should be quite interesting in terms of how people/organisations implement and how widely it becomes utilised.

Database Search and Replace

Database Search and Replace | eLearning Kaizen | Scoop.it

Search and replace allows you to replace strings of text throughout the site in one step. This is often used when the Moodle server changes its URL and you wish all the links on the site to reflect the new domain name. The tool will trawl the site and replace the links of the old site with the new one. This can be done whilst the site is in use but it can be very resource heavy for large databases and can significantly slow down the Moodle whilst the replace is being don

Moodle plugins directory: Flexible sections format

Moodle plugins directory: Flexible sections format | eLearning Kaizen | Scoop.it

Organises course content in any number of sections that can be nested. Each section can be displayed expanded or collapsed

 

This course format looks very similar to Topics format except:

 

* there is no parameter "Number of sections", sections can be added and removed as necessary

* section can also be added inside another section

* each section (regardless of its nesting level) can be shown expanded or collapsed. Teacher can change it in edit mode.

* If section is displayed collapsed, it's name is displayed as a link to the separate page and on this separate page the link "Back to ... " is displayed

If teacher hides a section all nested sections and activities become hidden as well.

 

Please note that if section has both activities and subsections activities are displayed first.

Best Practices: Working with Glossary

Best Practices: Working with Glossary | eLearning Kaizen | Scoop.it

The Right Tool for the Job

 

Moodle’s Glossary module, with its multiple display formats, can be a powerful tool for encouraging student engagement. It gives you the opportunity to assess student learning within the activity, if desired, making it a go to option for many course builders and facilitators.

 

Whether it is definitions, information, links or files, the Glossary activity allows participants to collaboratively collect and organize information. (Glossary’s can also be built solely by the instructor for information dissemination.) Glossary entries can be searched or browsed alphabetically, or by category, date or author. Instructors can set the glossary activity so that entries are approved by default or require approval by a teacher before they are viewable by everyone. An instructor can also allow comments on entries.

 

Instructors can enable ratings on glossary activities allowing entries to be rated by teachers or students (peer evaluation). Ratings can be aggregated to form a final grade which is recorded in the gradebook

 

Benefits of Glossaries

 

Let’s look at some of the benefits the glossary activity gives both students and teachers:

 

* Building Community: The glossary activity allows students to share information about themselves, their interests, and their work, providing opportunities for students in the online environment to build connections.

* Increased Student Engagement: Students as content creators are more engaged in the learning experience.Collect Resources for Future Use: Content entered into the glossary can be used as resources in future classes.

* Opportunity for Group Work: Using glossaries in large classes is an easy way to incorporate group work, an important skill for today’s students.

Curate Your Own Video Board: Chill Is The New Pinterest for Video

Robin Good: Chill, the video sharing and discovery site, has just introduced a new feature that allows anyone to clip and share, on a Pinterest-like thematic board, all of the video clips he finds on the web.

 

The new Chill bookmarklet works very much like the Pinterest one. When you click it, a page shows you all of the video clips found in that page and offers you to clip and "post" the one you want, with your comments. 

 

It's as easy as that.

 

The generated "curated" Chill video boards are easy to scan and browse, though, in my view, a great boon would be the ability to check a few of those videos and to click a play button that plays them full screen back to back. This way I have the best of curated content, my own selection, and the final lay-back and watch gratification option. 

 

Very promising. 

 

Go try it out now: http://chill.com/bookmarklet ;

Blended Learning – Is it the right move for you?

Blended Learning – Is it the right move for you? | eLearning Kaizen | Scoop.it

Most modern organisations invest in corporate training programs. But in the age of all pervasive technology, BYOD, next generation cloud computing, is it enough to leave training programs behind in the classroom? Do you need to revamp your learning program and implement strategies that can enhance reach, appeal and impact? In short, should your learning program move to a “Blended Learning” mode?

 


Via Edumorfosis
Matt Gleeson's insight:

True Blended Learning  is implemented as an enhancement of classroom or face-to-face delivery, rather than as a replacement for some of  the face-to-face delivery time that would have been allocated otherwise . Blended Learning is a strategy for learning reinforcement and enhanced engagement by revising classwork (but not just rehash and repetition, engagement with the material in an alternate or as yet unfamiliar scenario), linking and extending onwards from classwork into the "next step" of the material, and/or attacking the coursework from another angle entirely, linking to what they learned in class, and looking at it in another way - for example, trades based training such as electrical workers where there are important aspects of the material to be learned in both the practical hands-on side of the training, as well as a strong requirement for integrating these hands-on skills with a significant theory component. Blended learning can be very effectively employed in a scenario such as this, where the practical aspects are taught face-to-face and the theory aspects, and how they directly relate to the practical,  are taught via online learning.

Moodle.org conducting a short Gradebook Survey

Moodle.org conducting a short Gradebook Survey | eLearning Kaizen | Scoop.it

If you love (or hate) the Moodle gradebook or simply have a quick tip for how it could be improved, Moodle.org is now conducting a short survey in advance of a Gradebook-focused meetup this summer. According to the post,

    "We are turning our attention again soon to doing some significant work on the Moodle Gradebook.

    A face-to-face Moodle Gradebook workshop is scheduled for June 11-12 in Long Beach, California where a small group of some of the most active Gradebook developers and users are aiming to produce a draft spec for the next stage of Gradebook development, and after some further feedback from the community about it I intend to have Moodle HQ do as much of that as we can in Moodle 2.8 due in November this year.

    To help us at the workshop, we are collating as much information as possible from our wonderful worldwide Moodle community about what you want and need in Moodle grading. A lot of this is already in the Moodle Tracker, in contributed code and from feedback you give to Moodle Partners.

    In addition we are going to be conducting two surveys, a short one first and then a longer one."

This is a really valuable opportunity to turn what is the bane of some Moodler’s existence (I kinda love how flexible and simple it can be if you adopt a straightforward grade policy). Participate in the survey here: http://goo.gl/1w3vW8
